1 DwellintheWord.net Bible Study - Adam and Eve Life Lessons from Adam and Eve The story of Adam and Eve found in Genesis 2:15 3:13 is also our story and we can learn a lot from them. In the Beginning God Said: Read Genesis 1:26-27 and fill in the missing words from the following Scriptures (New King James "Let make man in Our, according to Our ; let them have over the of the sea, over the of the air, and over the, over the earth and over creeping thing that creeps on the earth." (Genesis 1:26) 2. So created man in His image; in the image of He created him; male and female He created. (Genesis 1:27) God is a Holy God who only has righteous thoughts and righteous ways. And this is who He was creating all of mankind to be, starting with Adam and Eve. He told them who they were created to be in His image and after His likeness. Which meant they were to have righteous thoughts and righteous ways just like He does. He told them what they were to do take "dominion" over all the things of the earth. Everything except people. God s Instructions Read Genesis 2:15-17 and fill in the missing words from the following Scriptures (New King James 1. Then the Lord took the and put him in the of Eden... (Genesis 2:15) the Lord God the man, saying, "Of tree of the garden you freely eat; (Genesis 2:16) 3. But of the tree of the of good and you shall eat, for in the that you eat of it you shall surely." (Genesis 2:17)

2 - AE 2 - God gave mankind a freewill from the beginning of creation. Having a freewill means mankind can choose to do what is right or choose to do what is wrong. If you notice in Genesis 2:16 God told Adam he could eat from "every" tree of the garden this is where his freewill will come into play. He could eat from every tree but if he ate of the tree God told him not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, there would be severe consequences. God does not want robots but people who freely choose of their own freewill to love Him and obey Him. So He had to allow an opportunity for Adam and Eve to exercise their freewill, thus the tree that would allow them to make a choice of obedience or disobedience. In Genesis 2:9 we are told that God made every tree that is pleasant and good for food. And in Genesis 1:12 we are told that God created trees that yielded fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. God didn t mingle the seed; every seed was pure and could not be both good and evil. So we see the handiwork of God s enemy and ours the devil. But God knows the tree is there and He warns Adam about it. What the enemy has meant for harm, God will use to allow mankind to exercise his freewill. God wants all mankind to freely choose to love and obey Him and not be forced to do so. The Choice is Ours Read Deuteronomy 30:15,19 and fill in the missing words from the following Scriptures (New King James 1. "See, I have set before today life and, death and." (Deuteronomy 30:15) 2. "I call and earth as today against, that I have before you and death, and cursing; therefore life, that both and your descendants may." (Deuteronomy 30:19) God wants us to know that He wants nothing less than His very best for us. But we can choose to settle for less than His best. He won t take away our freedom of choice but He pleads with us to choose life and blessing and not death and curse. He knows the consequences we will have to endure when we choose disobedience instead of obedience and He wants to spare us from having to reap the results of a wrong choice which leads to death eternal separation from Him. This is what God offered to Adam and Eve. In all fairness, He had to give them a chance to choose for themselves what they wanted for their lives but He pleads with them to choose wisely. And He continues to plead with all mankind to this very day to choose wisely our eternity depends on it. A Liar and Deceiver Comes Calling Answer the following statements with True or False. (Based on Genesis 1:26 and 3:1-5 New King James 1. God created mankind in His image and after His likeness.

3 - AE 3-2. God created mankind to have dominion over all the earth. 3. The serpent came to pay a friendly little visit. 4. Eve had to listen to the serpent. 5. Adam and Eve had dominion over the serpent. 6. Adam could have protected Eve and ordered the serpent out of the garden. 7. Adam and Eve were like God because they had been created in His image and after His likeness. 8. God was withholding something good from Adam and Eve. 9. God didn t mean it when He said they would die if they ate the fruit. God is Truth and cannot tell a lie, while the devil is a thief, a liar, and a deceiver. And this is who is trying to convince Adam and Eve that God has lied and is trying to keep a good thing from them. Adam and Eve let the enemy rob them of who God told them that they were and what they were capable of doing. They were already like God having been created in His image and after His likeness. And they had been given dominion over everything on earth. God wanted them to have life and blessing and not have to experience death and curse so He told them not to eat of the tree of the "knowledge" of good and evil. If they had believed in God s love and goodness, they would have told the enemy that they had dominion over him and they wanted him to shut up and leave their garden because they did not want to hear his lies nor his slandering of God. And they could have declared their love for and trust in God and therefore would not disobey Him. Like any good parent, God did not want His children to experience the bad side of life so He warned them against doing what could cause them to experience it. But Adam and Eve had to decide for themselves what they wanted to do with their lives. We have to make that same choice today. Being Tempted Read James 1:14-15 and fill in the missing words from the following Scriptures (New King James 1. But one is when he is away by his own and enticed. (James 1:14) 2. Then, when has conceived, it gives to sin; and, when it is full-grown, brings forth. (James 1:15) We can never say the devil made me do it. Yes, he will tempt us and try to get us to do his bidding but

4 - AE 4 - ultimately the choice is up to us. We need to remember who God created us to be and what He wanted us to do. We can depend and rely on the Holy Spirit to help us fulfill God s desire for our lives. He can keep us strong in times of temptation. We just need to ask Him to help us and He will. God the Father knows the plan He has for our life and it is a plan for good. God the Son has made it possible for the Father s plan to be fulfilled in our lives and God the Holy Spirit will help us to carry out the Father s plan for us to have a good life. Our Enemy Fill in the missing words from the following Scripture (New King James Jesus tells us in John 10: "The does not except to, and to, and to." Jesus is telling us that the serpent did not come for a friendly little visit with Adam and Eve but to steal, kill, and destroy. He wanted what God had given to mankind. He wanted to be a god and have dominion over the earth. Mankind had what he wanted and he would do whatever it took to steal the dominion over the earth they had received and kill God s image and likeness in them and destroy God s good plan for their lives. Jesus Temptations Jesus allowed Himself to be tempted just like Adam and Eve had been tempted but with a totally different outcome. Read Matthew 4:1-10 and then fill in the missing words from the following Scriptures (New King James And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. 1. Now when the came to Him, he said, " You are the of God, command that these become." (Matthew 4:3) 2. But He and said, "It is, Man shall not by bread alone, but by Word that from the mouth of." (Matthew 4:4) 3. Then the devil took up into the holy city, set Him on the of the temple, and said to Him, " You are the of God, throw Yourself..." (Matthew 4:5-6) 4. said to him, "It is again, You shall tempt the Lord your

5 - AE 5 -." (Matthew 4:7) 5. Again the devil took up on an exceedingly high, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the and their glory. (Matthew 4:8) 6. And he said to, "All these I will You if You fall down and me." (Matthew 4:9) 7. Then said to him, " with you, satan! For it is, you shall the Lord your and only you shall." (Matthew 4:10) Jesus shows us how to deal with the tempter when he comes calling. He again and again said it is written. He used the Word of God to overcome the tempter because He absolutely believed what God had said, while Adam and Eve allowed doubt to be placed in their minds about what God had said. The tempter tried to place doubt into Jesus mind with the word "if." If You are the Son of God. But Jesus was confident as to who He was so the tempter couldn t get any where with Him using this tactic. The tempter said he could give the world to Jesus. But Jesus knew He had been manifested for the purpose of destroying the works of the devil (see 1 John 3:8) so the devil was not going to have anything to give. Jesus knows why He has come, but apparently the devil doesn t. But Jesus knows who the tempter is a thief, a liar, a deceiver, and a defeated foe, so He tells him to get away from Him. We need to remember this when the tempter comes calling on us and tell him to get away from us too. Don t ever listen to a thief, a liar, a deceiver, and a defeated foe. Ignore the Temptations of the World Read 1 John 2:16-17 and fill in the missing words from the following Scriptures (New King James the of the flesh, the of the eyes, and the of life - is not of the but is of the. (1 John 2:16) 2. And the is passing, and the of it; but he who the Will of God forever. (1 John 2:17) Answer the following questions Yes or No: 1. Did Adam and Eve lust after the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil?

6 - AE 6-2. Can something look good to us but be very deadly for us? 3. Does God try to warn us about doing something that could cause us great harm? 4. Should we pay attention to the worldly temptations that call out to us? 5. Is giving into a small temptation harmless? 6. Can the Word of God help us resist the tempter and his temptations? The world is full of all sorts of temptations. Some we know immediately are harmful while others seem harmless but are still deadly. Giving into what looks like just a small temptation can lead to more serious temptations. When the tempter sees that we are willing to compromise even just a little bit, he will mark us as a candidate for bigger temptations. When we stay in God s Word, the Holy Spirit can make us aware of where we have compromised and what we need to do to stay out of harm s way. He will help us know how to fight the temptations that come to us and not give in to them. Adam and Eve s mistake was in not asking God s help in dealing with the serpent. They could have immediately called out to God and told Him what was happening. He would have helped them handle the situation. We must remember that! Resisting Temptation Read 1 Corinthians 10:13; James 1:13-14; James 4:7; Psalm 119:105; Psalm 119:11 and fill in the missing words from the following Scriptures (New King James 1. No has overtaken except such as is to man; But is, who will allow you to be beyond what you are, but with the will also make the of escape, that you be able to it. (1 Corinthians 10:13) 2. Let no one when he is, "I am tempted by "; for God cannot be by evil, nor does Himself anyone. (James 1:13) 3. But each one is when he is away by his own and. (James 1:14) 4. Therefore to God. the devil and he will from you. (James 4:7) 5. Your Word is a to my feet and a to my path. (Psalm 119:105)

7 - AE 7-6. Your I have hidden in my, that I might sin against. (Psalm 119:11) God is always available to help us deal with any temptations that come our way. If we store His Word in our hearts it will be a quick check of what is wrong and what is right in God s sight. Disobedience Revealed Read Genesis 3:6-7 and fill in the missing words from the following Scriptures (New King James 1. So when the saw that the tree was good for, that it was pleasant to the, and a tree desirable to make one, she took of its and ate. She also gave to her with her, and he.(genesis 3:6) 2. Then the of both of them were, and they knew that they were ; and they sewed fig leaves and made themselves. (Genesis 3:7) Adam and Eve were tempted by the three lusts that are most common to all mankind: Lust of the flesh good for food Lust of the eyes pleasant to the eyes Pride of Life make one wise But what a price they paid for giving into those temptations. In Genesis 2:25 it says, "And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed." Before they sinned they could look at one another without shame because there wasn t any sin in them to make them ashamed of what they saw. But once they had sinned, when they looked at one another they knew their bodies had changed and they saw the naked truth of their sinfulness in one another and they were ashamed. Sin always brings shame. And disobedience will be revealed. Can t Hide from God Read Genesis 3:8-11 and then fill in the missing words from the following Scriptures (New King James 1. And they the sound of the Lord God in the garden in the cool of the, and Adam and his wife themselves from the of the Lord God among the trees of

8 - AE 8 - the. (Genesis 3:8) 2. Then the Lord God to Adam and to him, " are you?" (Genesis 3:9) 3. So he said, "I heard Your in the garden, and I was because I was and I myself." (Genesis 3:10) 4. And He said, " told you that you naked? Have you from the tree of which I you that you should eat?" (Genesis 3:11) God knew where Adam was, you can t hide from God. But God wanted Adam to face up to where his disobedience had gotten him. God already knew what had happened, He is giving Adam an opportunity to confess his disobedience and repent of disobeying God. Being naked means to become aware of being in a state of sinfulness before God and others. When sin is exposed it brings shame. Sin caused them to die spiritually and then their bodies changed and exposed their disobedient state. They tried to cover it up but they couldn t fool God. God s Redemption Plan Read Genesis 3:14-15 and fill in the missing words from the following Scriptures (New King James So the Lord God said to the serpent "Because have done, you are more than cattle, and more than beast of the field; on your you shall go, and you shall eat all the days of your life. (Genesis 3:14) 2. And I will put between you and the and your and her Seed; He shall bruise your, and you shall bruise His." (Genesis 3:15) Genesis 3:21 says the Lord God made tunics of skin, and clothed Adam and Eve. This was to cover the changes that had happened to their bodies because of their sin, God had to take the life of an innocent animal to cover their sin. This was symbolic of the Lamb of God without spot or blemish that would give His life to redeem mankind from their sinful state and end their shame. God had not lied eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil had brought spiritual death

9 - AE 9 - and a changed body that would die. Mankind could not undo what had been done, but God could and He would. The Word of God says: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16. "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil." 1 John 3:8. Jesus said from the cross: "It is finished!" (John 19:30). He had completed what He had come to do destroy the works of the devil and redeem mankind from sin and shame. "For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." 2 Corinthians 5:21. "I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness." Isaiah 61:10.
